Abstract: In this work we use a phase-only spatial light modulator (SLM) to mimic a ring-slit aperture, containing multiple azimuthally varying phases at different radial positions. The optical Fourier transform of such an aperture is currently known and its intensity profile has been shown to rotate along its propagation axis. Here we investigate the near-field of the ring-slit aperture and show, both experimentally and theoretically, that although the near-field possesses similar attributes to its Fourier transform, its intensity profile exhibits no rotation as it propagates.
